The description is slightly off, you actually get a D2 blade with this knife (not sure if by accident but both the knives I bought had it) which is typically seen as an upgrade over 440C. I originally bought them to gift but I'm keeping one myself. These are fantastic! Only gripe is that I like a deep carry pocket clip (nothing wrong with the one that comes on it)... which I don't mind because this will fit the $5 replacement civivi pocket clips off Amazon. I'm going to pick up a few more at this price.

Mine just arrived and I was quite impressed. Good fit and finish all around, and the liners give it just enough heft to feel like the quality knife it is. Honestly I bought it to experiment with sharpening D2, but I could carry this most days with total confidence that it could do the everyday stuff impeccably. Flicks open with authority, closes easily, nice factory edge, all at a high-value price. If you just want one modern folder at a budget price, I don't see how you could go wrong. And if you want something handy in your desk, workshop, vehicle, or wherever, that too. It's the kind of great little folder that's one more example of how we're living in a golden age of knives.
I also got a D2 blade with this knife. It is the finest knife that I have ever owned. Thanks Blade HQ
Very well made for the price. D2 blade holds the edge well but, as we know, can be a challenge to sharpen if you don’t keep up with it. One major issue: the thumb stud is placed too far back on the blade so it’s in a cramped and awkward position when opening. Would be better if placed a bit more towards the tip.
